Harbour Haven's owners have hit the jackpot with this place it's a perfectly located Holiday Cottage in the centre of Ilfracombe right by the Harbour. A truly lovely cottage with tons of character and lots of thoughtful touches to make it feel a home away from home. The gaming chair and Xbox games made for perfect entertainment. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need. The owners communication is second to none. You won't be disappointed and can honestly say we will stay here again in the future.
Lovely cute town house. Walked in to a welcome box including a bottle of wine and freshly baked bread, with a quirky message in the bottle as a welcome note. The whole house is done out in a nautical theme with amazing slipper baths. Very child friendly, there are so many games, including a full car racing kit and every board game under the sun. 50 yards from the harbour, and two houses e away from two great cosy local pubs. Will definitely be going back!
Just returned from a three night stay at Harbour haven and can absolutely recommend it as a rental, its got a big thumbs up from us. It’s loction is superb, right by the harbour, it’s close to the shops and places to eat and drink as well as local attractions such as Woolacombe, Combe Martin, Hele Bay and more. It’s a lovely property with old beams and a real seaside feel. It really is lovely and had the added bonus that we could take the dog with us who also loved going on all the beaches north Devon had to offer.
The cottage is really comfortable and the owners have thought of every last thing you might need to make it home from home. It’s well stocked with cutlery, crockery, pot & pans etc. It has all the amenities you could need and the beds are ridiculously comfortable. It has now TV so you can watch movies and even a gaming chair and darts board, plenty to keep everyone occupied. There was even a welcome tray of goodies when we arrived and a keysafe outside so you don’t worry about losing the keys! Everything thought of!
Split over three floors the cottage is light, airy and spacious. The top floor ensuite is great and we have had a really lovely time staying here. Great location and well worth a stay.
A perfectly located quirky house on 4 floors perfectly located by the Harbour and Beech. Your hosts have thought of everything you need to keep you entertained even a picnic set for the beech! Our party was 2 adults and 2 older teens staying February had term.
Me and the husband went down to Ilfracombe for a week and we were not disappointed in the slightest! The pictures made the house look inviting but they don't really do it justice in person, it feels like the sort of place you could happily spend weeks just relaxing and exploring. If, like us, you enjoy exploring the natural beauty of a place, Ilfracombe is the place for you. The owners provide a book that has a lot of information about the local area and a section devoted to walks through the countryside and along the cliffs, we would definitely recommend a walk up to the chapel/lighthouse to see one of the oldest functioning lighthouses in Britain.
Now I could write about Ilfracombe for a lot longer but the accommodation is what made us want to return. The house itself felt like a home, we had a lot of things provided for us that we got to enjoy (who doesn't enjoy a free bottle of wine?) and we spent a lot of time in the bathrobes! We didn't really make much use of the games console or the TV but we're sure that the grandkids would've loved a go on the steering wheel rig, next time we'll bring them down.
To close this off before it gets a bit rambly, we would stay here again and again, the location was perfect (right next to the harbour and about 3 pubs!) and the view out over the harbour at night from the lifeboat station was jaw dropping.
Thanks again to the owners, they provided us with all of the information we needed to get along down there and were very responsive when we had any questions.
